Mother defends daughter, shoots man

Originally ran here as:
Woman, Defending Daughter, Shoots Man
No Charges Have Been Filed
Channel 4, The Carolina Channel


GREENVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA 3:30 p.m. EDT April 5, 2001 -- A woman who said that she was trying to defend her adult daughter shot a man to death Wednesday night.

Greenville County deputies told News 4 that 34-year-old Kenneth Richard Motes was fighting with his girlfriend at a home on White Horse Road, when the woman's mother shot Motes with a 16-gauge shotgun to end the argument.

Greenville County Coroner Kent Dill said that Motes died at Greenville Memorial Hospital early Thursday morning from his injuries.

Sheriff's Deputies and the Solicitor's office are considering charges against the woman, but none had been filed Thursday.

KABA NOTE:  Not enough information to know exactly what happened, but the fact that no charges were filed suggests that there may have been a clear cut case of self-defense and possibly a weapon involved.  In the video on the website linked above, the reporter says "deputies say she was defending her daughter."
